All eight career wins have come on AW tracks, however he was second in higher grade on fast ground at Brighton last summer and enters calculations on that form.
His last win came a year ago in better company. Handicapper has given him a chance for the first time since with forecast good ground in his favour.
15-race maiden whose best form has come at Lingfield. Others have more appealing claims and any rain would be detrimental.
Has developed into a good AW handicapper and she makes her turf debut on a competitive mark. Impossible to rule if taking to the surface.
Attractively weighted on the face value of his juvenile form. Missed last season and would be expected to need the run.
Out of his depth over a longer trip on comeback, but weighted to give a good account on last year's form and yard's runners always worth watching when the champion jockey is on board.
Dual C&D winner who handles any ground. Hard to fancy judged on his last two efforts and he is still 4lb above his last winning mark.
Handicapper took his measure following his fluent Bath victory and the veteran still has plenty on his plate.
Hasn't quite been able to run the same level of form he did for his previous stable since switching to this yard. Edging down the weights and cheekpieces tried, but others hold more convincing claims in this.
In and out performer is on a mark demanding she gives more than she has previously shown. Very poor last time and she looks opposable.
Winner at Salisbury last autumn when at the peak of his powers. Failed to handle the Kempton bend on penultimate start when heavily backed and he only beat one home last time on tapeta. Rain would aid his cause.
Her two best efforts have come over C&D including a soft ground success under today's rider off 3lb lower. Handles a quicker surface and has each-way claims.
Scored on sole visit here but he has been woeful on his last five starts and even an optimist would find it hard to see him winning.
